Where do we source our funding?
At Yorkshire In Business, we are lucky enough to source incredible funding to allow us to continue providing advice and support for local businesses and start ups.
Take a look at some of the organisations that have helped us to offer our local business projects and services here, or explore start up options below.
Aspire2lead (A2L) is an exciting new project part-funded by the European Social Fund. The project aims to provide free support to women to boost their skills and confidence, achieve their potential and contribute to the growth of businesses in the York and North Yorkshire LEP Area. The Opportunity Centre is working in partnership with Beyond 2030 and Yorkshire In Business to deliver a range of services with a holistic approach for individuals and organisations to suit their needs and goals.
A2L offers group training and one-to-one support to employed/self-employed women to tackle specific barriers to progress and help them advance within the workforce. The project also supports Small and Medium Enterprises to boost their productivity by adapting policies and procedures to improve inclusivity and attract and retain high-quality employees in their workforce. Schools, colleges and universities can also access influencer training which aims to encourage young women and girls to be ambitious and aim for senior leadership positions by tackling unconscious bias.
Please note, for individuals to be eligible, they must be in employment, have the right to live and work in the UK and be 19 years of age or above. Businesses must be able to prove that they have fewer than 250 employees to receive support.
